[Gameday Quick Bits] Day-to-Day, Minute-to-Minute, Second-to-Second

Watch the junk, dude - Bruce Bennett

Please be okay, John.

Had big plans for the Islanders coming out of the holiday break? Better temper them. John Tavares has a lower body injury and his status is day-to-day, which is exactly as vague as it sounds.

He is out for tonight's game, per the team, which brings other changes as well. Your new first line center is Brock Nelson:

Mark Herrmann is the man on the scene at the Coliseum today. Perhaps Tavares' injury is Radko Gudas-related?

Islanders News:

  • FIG Picks for tonight's game against Jersey are here.
  • Will Sammon pinch hit for Arthur Staple at Newsday yesterday and got to announce the first word on Tavares' injury. Not a lot of information so we'll wait for more. [New$day]
  • Eric Hornick has all the numbers on Tavares' consecutive games played streak, which stretched back to 2010.
  • Stop me if you've heard this before, but Kyle Okposo is making a case for this year's USA Olympic team. [Islanders]
  • Newsday runs down 2013 in New York Sports. The Islanders come in seventh behind, I think, six stories about A-Rod.
